You win, NFL. You’ve been gradually chipping away at the kickoff 鈥?dubbed for years now the most dangerous play in the game 鈥?with the goal of making it easier for everyone to deal with the elimination of the kickoff when it eventually happens. Perhaps the hope was that the sense of inevitability would grow to the point that the calls for the end of the kickoff would come from the outside.
It’s going to happen sooner or later. Make it happen sooner, so we can all quit wondering when it’s finally going to happen.
This volatility from most hitters is why I’m typically dead set against making too many roster moves in the first month of the season. If you’re always attempting to chase the hot players, you’re usually going to end up catching them just about the same time that cold spell does. And, you just know that if you cut a recently underwhelming player to make that move, you’re likely to be doubly snakebit when he ends up going on a blistering rampage at the plate.
So, if you are looking to shake things up and you simply can’t help yourself from clicking away at the waiver wire, might I suggest you add players who have had a poorer Week 2 than their Week 1 and let loose the players who heated up a bit in Week 2 after a slow start.
Adding Shin-Soo Choo (34 DeAndre Hopkins Womens Jersey Week 1 points, -5 in Week 2), Miguel Sano (26, -5), and Avisail Garcia (19, -4) to your Week 3 lineups while swapping out the likes of Justin Bour (6, 27), J.P. Crawford (-3, 23) and Wilmer Flores (2, 18) is probably the wiser course of action than keeping the status quo — at least for the next seven days, anyway. After that, it’s time to return to the crystal ball and cross your fingers if you’re intent on trying to predict hot streaks.

Ansah, who was Detroit’s franchise player, has signed his tender. That gives him a guaranteed salary of $17.143 million this season. If the Lions don’t work out a long-term deal with him, he’ll either hit unrestricted free agency next year or he’ll be guaranteed a 20 percent pay raise, which would mean a guaranteed salary of $20.572 million next year.
Last year Ansah had an up-and-down season with three different three-sack games, but a total of only three sacks in all the other games.
Limited Mens Kelly Hrudey Jersey Ansah will turn 29 next month and it’s unclear whether the Lions plan to work out a long-term deal with him or let him play out the season and make a decision about his future next year.
